If you can please furnish this information as you have done in the past, greatly appreciated! Apologies on my end – I should have gotten this out sooner and would like to collect all “evidence” by 28 December 2012. Please keep the 2012 INCOSE Awards Package subject line. The package award is due earlier, 6 January 2013 and thanks in advance for your help and assistance.

Ken Ptack is seeing if he is available to talk to the chapter about the International Symposium this last June in Rome. He suggested that the Symposium pictures might be of interest to the chapter I hunted them down. They are available on the newsletter portion of the Symposium website They are organized by days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with links on the left column. The thumbnails are very small but you can download a full size PDF of the daily newsletter.
